Abstract: Examples are constructed that include: first, a separable metric space having cohomological dimension 4 such that every Hausdorff compactification has cohomological dimension at least 5; second, a locally compact metric space having cohomological dimension 4 whose Stone-Čech compactification has infinite cohomological dimension.
